- Good hand and respiratory hygiene are important for stopping the spread of many bugs. By practicing and teaching your child how to wash their hands properly with soap for 20 seconds, using a tissue to catch coughs and sneezes, and keeping away from others when feeling unwell, they will be able to reduce the risk of picking up or spreading infections. So remember to:
- Catch it: always cough or sneeze into a tissue
- Bin it: always throw the used tissue in a bin
- Kill it: always wash your hands with soap and hot water
